The girls from across the hall and the original bros of television are coming together once again for what has to be one of the most iconic moments in TV history. That’s right, we are talking about the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. reunion episode. The entirely of social media has been campaigning relentlessly for HBO to release a reunion episode starring the cast. 17 years later, Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer and Matthew Perry are set to reunite on the original sets of the show. Of course, this couldn’t have come cheap. Way back when, the lead cast of the show were the highest paid ensemble cast on television. By the 10th season, each member of the group was reportedly paid $1 million per episode.
According to Variety, Jen Aniston and others must have been paid a whopping $2.5 million for the reunion episode – that ₹18.2 crore each in Indian currency. And that’s just a conservative estimate because other media portals claim that the members could have been paid as much as $4 million each. Till date, Aniston is one of the highest paid female actors on TV. For the Apple TV original series, Good Morning America, the actress was reportedly paid $2 million per episode.
